Peyton Elementary Library

The Peyton Elementary Library contains age-appropriate books for Pre-K through 6th grade.  Each class visits the Library once a week.  While there, the younger grades enjoy story time with Mrs. Irwin.  The older grades have various challenges learning library skills throughout the year, such as Library JINGO and Library Jeopardy to name a couple.   Students check out books for one week, however they are able to renew the materials.  During check-out time, students can also work on putting puzzles together and contributing to the Scrabble board with a word or two relating to the theme for the week.   Fun competitions are held throughout the year, such as the Roses are Red poem competition, the Newbery and Caldecott Challenge.   Each month Mrs. Irwin chooses a grade level and leads students in a fun art project which is displayed on her “Wall of Fame.”

The Panther Book Club is offered to students in grades 3, 4, 5 and 6.   Book Club meets during recess.  At the first meeting of the month, students receive a brief introduction to the book and a copy of the book.  Students read the entire book prior to the second session so they can participate in the discussion at the second meeting of the month.  See Mrs. Irwin for details and to join.

We are pleased to have the Pikes Peak Library Districts’ County Mobile Library (The Bookmobile) come to Peyton Elementary on most Tuesdays from 1:30-4:00.  This allows our students who have a Pikes Peak Library District library card to return and check out books.  Take advantage of this free resource!

Mrs. Irwin is the Peyton Elementary School Librarian.  She has been employed with Peyton School District since 2001.  In addition to providing a wonderful reading environment and tons of great books, she also runs the Book Club for grades 3-6.  She is also the Peyton Elementary Parents Group Treasurer.
